1. Portal Gun
Gamer / artist Volpin is back at it again, and this time, he’s created a second real-life Portal gun for the Child’s Play charity, founded by Penny Arcade. In this revision, the “aim was to duplicate as many parts of the original Portal Gun as possible.”
2. Mass Effect M-29 Incisor Rifle
For those unfamiliar with Mass Effect and its weapons, the M-29 Incisor rifle is basically “designed to overload active defenses such as shields; firing three shots with each pull of the trigger, the Incisor’s burst is so fast that all three rounds will be in the target by the time the barrel has moved a millimeter, increasing its stopping power without sacrificing accuracy.” This beauty was designed by Zprops.
